83 chevy 6.2 180,000 miles

starts, runs rough for a few seconds, then stalls, sometimes squeeks. Seems to be getting fuel up to the injectors. glow plugs are cycling properly. Problem started while rolling up to a left turn lane (decelerating)- it just stalled. No indication of rough running before it stalled. Able to restart (immediately-within 2 seconds of stall while still rolling). Drove for another mile slightly rough running- it sounded like a fuel delivery problem. stalled again and has not been able to run for more than a few seconds since. Been told by a diesel mechanic that I've lost at least one cylinder (engine has not been opened up yet). Sound plausible ?

Also, whats the approx. going rate for the labor to swap out the engine for rebuilt core (including hooking up all components). I live in So. Cal.

Thank you.
